Sending Love Your Way



I have been so busy since the Holidays have come to an end that I haven't had much time to sit down and make any cards. I made this card a few days before the first half of the Hero Arts Challenge ended and this is the only time that I have had to post this card. Oh well, better late than never.

I stamped the flower pattern stamp (Hero Arts CG330) onto a light lavender cardstock and then embossed with white embossing powder. After the image cooled, I colored all of the blank space with a versa mark pen. The clear pen darkened the paper and I like the effect of simply coloring with a clear pen. The sentiment (Tree Bird Hero Arts CL182) was embossed with a very light lavender embossing embossing powder. (It looks white in the picture.) The flower was made out of pink tissue paper. I punched out 15 scalloped circles and punched a small hole in the middle of all the circles and placed a small pink brad to hold all the layers together. The next thing that I did was scrunch the paper around the brad and fluffed out the paper and attached it to the card and added pink pearls. I am entering this card in the Hero Arts January2012B challenge. I hope that I am able to make a few more cards.


Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.

Wonderful Card Sue, I would not worry too much about not getting back into the swing of things as there are many of us in the same position, I have found it just as difficult, it will return.
Your Bg is gorgeous and goes so beautifully with the Flower.

Hi Sue! I love that flower pattern, one never really needs to do too much to it because it's just so beautiful, but I love your idea for the subtle darker shade! Very pretty card! Hope you had a great weekend! Hugs.
